The pinwheels also tie directly in to PCA-Wyoming's message of Awareness, Coordination, and Education. The symbol helps bring awareness to your community about child abuse and neglect, working with other groups in your community on a pinwheel project promotes coordination, and hosting an event where a speaker presents or educational materials are distributed helps educate your community on how abuse and neglect can be prevented and what to do if it occurs.
It is that time of year again! Prevent Child Abuse Wyoming has officially begun its 2016 Statewide Pinwheel Garden Project! This project has continued to grow over the last five years, and this year is no different. In 2016, we are hoping to double the amount of pinwheels that are planted and displayed all over this big state during April - Child Abuse Prevention Month.
We always love to hear and see the unique and new ideas you may have to display, share, or promote the blue and silver pinwheels and child abuse and neglect prevention. If you would like help in customizing a project for your group or community, please feel free to contact us!
There will be a special award given for the largest pinwheel garden sold again this year! We want to make this project as fun as it is important, and also want to recognize the groups, organizations and individuals who continually support this project and other projects of Prevent Child Abuse Wyoming.
To order your pinwheel garden(s), here is the official project information packet:
**OUT OF STATE ORDERS - If you are wanting to order pinwheels and are not in Wyoming, please contact your local PCA Chapter before ordering. Most chapters should have pinwheels available. If you are unable to access them through your state, we are happy to help you out.**
For your own pinwheel campaign, here are some examples of how you can message the pinwheels:
